Tune In: Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Podcast

SWhat do you want from me?!!!!  That’s what my clients sometimes want to ask of their child’s teachers.  Parents struggle with special education communication.  What do I say?  When do I communicate?  Why does the teacher need some information and not need others?  And do the school people talk themselves?!  In today’s conversation I sit down with my friend, Rebecca Scheerer, a special education teacher who also occupies the role of parents on an IEP team.  Becca answers all of our questions and gives us such important insight into a special education classroom.  Becca is presenting at our 2nd Annual Virtual Special Education & Advocacy Conference on January 22, 2022, and she’ll also give you a preview of her presentation in this episode!

Part 03: The 6W's of the Ashley Barlow Co - The Who

Calling all parents, teachers, school staff, self advocates, disability organization staff, doctors, therapists, coaches, tutors, grandparents, babysitters, community organization staff, volunteers, … Calling anyone that supports a student with a disability!!!


Parents of a child in special education are exhausted. Teachers and school staff are about the busiest professionals in the workforce. Nobody has time for in-person trainings, and thanks to COVID-19, few can safely access in-person trainings right now!
